World Standards Day

Discover the importance of World Standards Day

Every year on October 14, World Standards Day offers an opportunity to celebrate those who have contributed to developing the millions of Standards that we use and encounter every day. Standards across all industries ensure safety, sustainability and efficiency, enabling people to accomplish amazing things.

World Standards Day this year is continuing to shine a light on how Standards help achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, addressing climate change, economies and social imbalances. At the core of these shared goals is a desire for a world that is better, fairer, more inclusive and sustainable, so it can be enjoyed by generations to come.
